Happy hens, healthy eggs
We believe that keeping our hens happy and healthy means that we get the healthiest, tastiest free range eggs (in the same way that a healthy soil, and healthy plants makes for tasty berries).
Here are some of the ways we keep our hard working hens happy...
Hens are natural roamers. We make sure they have plenty of space (40 acres to be precise!) to feel at home in a natural, open environment.
Born to roam...
We make sure to plant plenty of trees throughout their pasture - hens are naturally inquisitive animals, and love foraging and rummaging in the treelines and hedgerows (probably because their ancestors were jungle dwellers).
Plenty of trees...
Naturally inquisitive, hens are happiest when their minds are active. So we pack a variety of activity kits and shelters throughout the pasture - everything from hawk shelters, to mini footballs to peck at and practice their eggscellent dribbling skills...
So many activities!
We're not even yolking! Believe it or not, hens love using dust and sand to preen themselves. So we make sure to provide special dust-baths for them to spruce up and do their thing.
